Parent must receive evaluation reports
Parent must receive evaluation reports prior to Individualized Education Program (IEP) meeting.
While there is no stated timeline in IDEA, it is important that parents have the information they need to participate meaningfully in IEP Team meetings, which includes reviewing their child’s records.
"Section 300.613(a) requires a public agency to comply with a parent request to inspect and review existing education records, including an evaluation report, without unnecessary delay and before any meeting regarding an IEP, and in no case more than 45 days after the request has been made. This includes the right to a response from the public agency to reasonable requests for explanations and interpretations of records, consistent with § 300.613(b)(1).”
